I recently posted specs on a diamond I am looking at, (please see: "Which way do I go? Specs on two stones"), and I was encouraged to seek an additional "Sarin" report. I received this report from the seller and the numbers don't exactly match those in the GIA cert. Both lists of stats can be found in my earlier posting mentioned above, but I just want to know if this seller is being honest with me when she tells me that such discrepancies are normal and that both reports are indeed for the same stone.
Thanks,
Dead Tired:knockout:

Oops,
Real sorry, but the dimensions of the stone from the GIA should read:

6.52 x 6.43 x 4.81

not

6.52 x 5.43 x 4.91

Thanks,
Dead Tired

The sarin measurements for the stone size are acheived by a construction method - measuring the angles and joining the dots.
GIA have measured the stone, this is more acccurate.
The table variance results from the same method, and is not super critical.

This is an acceptable variation and I have no reason to suspect foul play :)
